Triple PLAY Event Sponsorship ($6,000) gives exceptional event recognition and benefits throughout the year at Marbles signature events - Imagination Ball, Marbles BIG IDEA Forum and Marbles Evening with Elves. Triple PLAY is the perfect platform to support Marbles all year long while giving clients and employees the opportunity to enjoy Marbles together. 

Marbles Imagination Ball in April is our annual grown-up gala featuring fabulous food, drinks and dancing to benefit the Imagination Fund, making play possible for ALL children.

Marbles BIG IDEA Forum in October brings together 300+ corporate and community leaders for a dynamic lunchtime event focused on creativity and innovation in the workplace and at home. Proceeds benefit the Create/Innovate initiative at Marbles which gives kids the tools and resources they need to imagine, invent, experiment and solve.

Marbles Evening With Elves in December is Marbles signature holiday family event featuring festive food, s'mores outdoors, museum play, wintry fun and real elves all in a magical North Pole setting. Hugely popular with families, this event sells out each year with over 1,200 guests.
